Neo-Mandaic (Mandāyî)

Neo-Mandaic is an Aramaic language spoken by 300-500 people in Iran and among the Mandaean diaspora. It is more conservative than other Neo-Aramaic languages, though has been influenced by Arabic and Persian. It is a modern descendent of Classical Mandaic, the liturgical language of the Mandaean religion in Iran and Iraq. There are two dialects: Ahvāz and Khorramshahr, which are mutually intelligible.

Neo-Mandaic is rarely written, but when it is a version of the classical Mandaic script is used.
